Animals are such a gentle, loving constant in many of our lives. One of the most beautiful things about living with an animal friend is that we get to care and feed for them and in return receive the beautiful gift of unconditional love and acceptance. We learn so much about forgiveness, compassion and understanding from animals. Take some time today to appreciate the animals that surround you and learn from the beautiful behaviors that come naturally from them. Also think on this, if we gave this type of unconditional acceptance and love to those around us, how different would our lives be? Just like a dog shakes it off when it gets over excited or frustrated, we would be able to shake it off and move on leaving the bad energy behind. How awesome would that be? Let's give it a try and see.
